5 More Decorating Ideas for your Kids' Bedroom
Interior designer Michelle Dumlao-Pastoral shares more practical ideas for your child's own sanctuary
If you plan to build your own home or give your existing space a makeover, you should also work on the kid's bedroom. Although this space will not be as seen as the living, dining, and other shared areas, it should still be well-designed.
You should strive to create a safe enviroment that will be ideal for studying, playing, and resting. It should also be a haven that will reflect your little one's personality.
Here are more tips on how to personalize and organize your own kid's bedroom.
If you choose a light color for the bedroom walls, you can opt for slightly brighter shades for your curtains, pillows, bed sheets, and accent pieces.
RL Tip: Pick white or soft pastel shades that would still be perfect even as your child grows older. In the meantime, you can liven up the space with colorful accessories.
Based on your design ideas and concept board for the bedroom, you should think about how much you can spend on the space.
Make a list of what you already have and what you can spend on. For example, you should invest in a crib that can be turned into a bed as your child grows and a high-quality mattress. However, you might still be able to reuse your side tables and other accessories.
RL Tip: Remember that built-in pieces like cabinets and shelves may be more expensive. Set aside enough money for these customized storage options.
You should always look for furniture pieces that will fit within the given area. In order to do this, you must take measurements and consider custom-made furniture pieces. Custom-made items will also help you ensure that you have the right sizes and shapes.
In this bedroom, the bed and the shelves are ideal for the space. The area also becomes more special because of its fun and playful basketball theme.
If you don't have any built-in cabinets, you can think about creative storage solutions. In this bedroom, I used a secondhand wooden chest from a thrift store as a bedside table. I also furnished the space with a custom-made toy chest that looks like the Titanic.
Make the room more interesting with plain and printed fabrics for soft furnishings like the curtains, pillows, bed sheets, and even stuffed toys!
In this bedroom, architect Arlene Sanchez-Maslog chose striped bed sheets in red, blue, and white. She also completed the area with different colors and patterns.
